An additional feature may be that getting the "Emergency" pack of data from the server may require two or more configurable users to request it before it is logged, alerts sent, and then delivered to those two users. This would be independent from actually being able to access the data.
Separately, you could require two or more configurable users to enter their Packing Key (on one computer? separate computers?) in order to fully decrypt the pack. Yes, you could accomplish the same thing by only sharing separate halves of the password to two people, but that leaves a lot of room for error, especially when you share with multiple sets of two people, or sets of three or more people.
The point is, making it so that the criteria for the delivery of the pack containing the encrypted password is discrete from the criteria for actually decrypting the data would make for a lot of flexibility (and peace of mind) for the sharer.BrianC shared this idea ·
This is a beautiful idea! This would keep people from having to install the desktop client in order to get automatic backups.
Plus, you could potentially have a copy sent to someone other than yourself (spouse, parent, lawyer) to make sure your backup is available in case your accounts become inaccessible.
Also see the "Break Glass In Case of Emergency" suggestion. Part 2 of that suggestion requires that 2 (or more if specified) people have to log in together to access the shared password. This keeps one person from getting to your emergency password with nobody else knowing about it.
Logs & Audits will be included in a future release of Passpack. No ETA, please continue to vote so we can give this priority in our scheduling.
Logging and alerting (email or SMS?) would be great for accessing shared and group passwords. See also the "Break Glass In Case of Emergency" suggestion down on the list.
